GRRRLS—It's been far too long since I've been grrrled at, but that's about to be fixed: The Slabtown Grrrl Front Festival is four all-ages days of talented ladies in music (Busy Scissors, Litto Fox) and stand-up comedy (Bri Pruett, Marcia Belsky), plus an art show, zine workshop, roller derby sign-ups, a demo for a riot grrrl-themed videogame, a clothing swap benefit, and the kitchen sink. MS
Slabtown, 1033 NW 16th, Thurs-Sun, $7 nightly or $20 pass, slabtownbar.net for schedule
CULT THEATER—Manos: The Hands of Fate is widely considered to be one of the worst films ever made—but it makes a hell of a good stage show, and Capital I Productions' adaptation is campy and hilarious. Bonus: An onstage band featuring members of Blitzen Trapper and Viva Voce, and voice acting from one of the original actors in the 1966 film. AH
Ethos/IFCC, 5340 N Interstate, Thurs-Sat 8 pm, through May 5, $20
